Morocco: Sidi Moktar seismic survey under way

Longreach Oil & Gas Ltd. said Prospectiuni SA has begun shooting 500 line-km of 2D seismic over the Koba and Kamar drill targets on the Sidi Moktar permit onshore Morocco.

The survey is aimed at derisking and optimizing the drilling locations at Koba and Kamar and to help convert a number of other identified leads into drillable prospects. Prospectiuni has deployed a Vibroseis cableless crew.

Longreach is also launching international tenders for a rig to drill two wells and to procure the associated long-lead items for drilling in the first half of 2013.

Longreach has interpreted more than 4,500 line-km of existing 2D seismic data on Sidi Moktar and has completed reprocessing 1,750 line-km with Key Seismic Solutions Ltd., Calgary. This work has yielded a greatly enhanced image of the prospective Triassic section.

The removal of multiple reflections and imaging of the dipping Triassic rocks, correlated with nearby Meskala gas field, has transformed the prospectivity of the Triassic section, Longreach said.
